Bad Faith

Bad faith in trademark law refers to the act of intentionally filing a trademark application or using a trademark that infringes on the rights of another party. This can include using a trademark that is confusingly similar to an existing trademark, filing a trademark application with false or misleading information, or attempting to register a trademark with the intent to profit from the reputation or goodwill of an existing trademark. The consequences of bad faith can be severe, including the cancellation of a trademark registration, damages, and injunctive relief. In some cases, bad faith use of a trademark can also lead to criminal sanctions.

Trademark Registration: DIY vs Professional Service

Filing for trademark registration is something anybody can do with a single online application. Many business owners, however, decide to wait with trademark registration because the process can appear quite complicated at first sight. Applying without a legal representative can be a difficult and time-consuming process. Mistakes and errors are easy to make and can lead to weak trademark protection or the rejection of your trademark registration altogether.
